Seaside Dreams (Lucite Sculpture) Steve Barton Art From World-Renowned “Wavy” Frame Painter Available at Marcus Ashley Art Gallery in South Lake Tahoe
“I fell in love with the palm trees of Southern California. They are a perfect complement to the sand and water.” – Steve Barton
Marcus Ashley Fine Art Gallery exhibits the largest collection of Steve Barton art, both in their brick-and-mortar showroom and on their online exhibition. The artist is famous for his loose impressionistic oil paintings, but every now and then, he also exercises his creativity through sculpting. Using fine art acrylic (Lucite) as the medium, Barton remains consistent with his vision of presenting coastal landscapes with a dreamlike quality.
Seaside Dreams, an egg-shaped sculpture illustrates his signature trope of the serene life on the beach. Two easy chairs sit contentedly under the shade of a palm tree on the silvery seashore. Both look out on the calm cobalt sea along with a luxurious growth of deep red and orange flowers.
This piece can be placed on a windowsill to allow sunlight to pass through and reveal the prism of colors it holds within. It may also be set on a table in a dim room with artificial lights aimed at the center. A hollow pedestal that illuminates the sculpture underneath will demonstrate the same effect.
